### Let's Talk About Bar Graphs- Parts and Purposes!

Bar graphs compare categorical data (information in categories). There are three important parts of a bar graph: 1. The Title (This can tell you what question has been asked!) 2. The label on the bottom of the graph (called the X axis) and the side of the graph (the Y- Axis). 3. The scale (the numbers representing the totals) One axis of the graph will include the scale, or numbers, to represent the totals. Both the X and Y-axis will have a label to define the categories, or information gathered. Can you figure out what is missing on these graphs? Can you look at information and make a bar graph that includes all 3 important parts? Steps: 1. Click to add your response. 2. Review the parts of a bar graph on slide 1. 3. Use any tool to fill in the missing part of each graph on slides 2-5. 4. Use any tool to create your own graph with the information on slide 6. Don't forget to include all the parts of a bar graph! 5. Click to submit your work! Dont forget to listen to the on each slide for directions. Have fun!
